Oh @brianstelter did not have a pile of fans calling in to C-SPAN today. This man really brought the pain, saying "CNN is the enemy of truth." Stelter said yeah, Trump has "radicalized" people with this talk of media bias. Laughably claims MSM is structured to keep bias out!

Demo-rats demand they rename the county after MICHAEL Jackson --to honor all their LGBTQ scammers

Anonymous said...

Come on! I originally suggested the Bo Jackson redesignation as a joke. Like most Black public figures, Bo Jackson is extremely racist against whites and is hardly a worthy man to immortalize based upon the paucity of achievements in his life when measured against his potential. Andrew Jackson won his battle against the first Bank of America and Bo Jackson broke a few bats before suffering a career ending injury. It is only a reflection of the shallowness of this age that it would be seriously considered.

What do you base that assertion that Bo Jackson is racist against whites on 9:49?

Considering the clarity and orderliness with which the County's Government operates, I always assumed that it had been named to honor Jackson Pollock.

The long-haired ANTIFA / BLM guy is covered with prison tats that initiated the fight with the Marine.

The ANTIFA guy was getting his ass kicked by the Marine until the mob jumped the Marine and started kicking and beating him while he was pounding the convict.

Who is paying these folks and buying their expensive video equipment.

One Marine took on the whole mob. I would not want to piss off millions of current and former Marines that live in the United States. Trump probably picked up 100% of their vote after yesterday's ANTIFA / BLM attack.

Boys and Girls look at the pictures closely of the ANTIFA / BLM members who look like they were recently released from prison. If you vote for Joe Biden and the Marxist Democrat Party; these are the people who will be in charge.

Basement Biden is making a panic driven photo op in Kenosha. Thought you said that would backfire Joe. Why the flip flop? Are the internal polls that bad? Was backing the domestic terrorists a bad move?

"The thinking, according to these people, is that Trump’s trip to Kenosha could backfire on the president. The Biden campaign is ramping up its messaging that the unrest in the city and elsewhere is an outgrowth of the president's rhetoric that inflames racial tensions."

Damn you Democrats are thick!
